The Jungle Cat cage is very small and the animals inside were pacing restlessly which made me a little sad. All of the other animals’ enclosures seemed adequate though. Not significantly smaller than enclosures at Zoos I’ve visited in the USA. The environment of the Zoo is very beautiful and the path through the exhibits meanders up and down big hills surrounded by forest. There is also a small one-room ecological museum near the entrance that is worth walking through before you leave. It has lots of taxidermy specimens including an enormous gharial. I had no idea gharials could be so large.

Assam zoo is in the heart of the city. If you are at Guwhati and need to spend about 4-5 hours , you are a naturalist trying to understand the endemic species. This is a protected area and good space - Green lung for a breath of fresh air. There is wonderful 2 km walk you can enjoy with leopards, cats, tiger, lion, Rhino , deers of various types. An Aviary and childrens park too for the excitement of young ones. A lovely musuem which preserves the extinct species too.

The Zoo was just awesome! Taking the vehicle to get around the place is the best way since its very pocket-friendly. The place is so vast that it's feels it never ends.

Every area is marked accurate so that one knows where they are.

Got to see a wide-range of animals especially the monkey family. Also the deers move about freely since the zoo is located within a jungle like area.

The best scene not to miss is the monkeys that roam around freely that too at the entrance of the Zoo.

It's the best Zoo ever visited.

Having a zoo right in the middle of the city, one would have thought that the zoo authorities would take more steps to make it one of kind. There are lot of good things about it. It has a great website which has a map and the map is also there just as you get into the zoo, but after that, the number of signs are really insufficient that you can get lost not knowing in which direction you want to go.

The animals and birds are well spaced out and it is a great experience to see them.

It's an expansive zoo with rather poor signage. Plenty of animals but easy to end up going in circles because of the signage. I decided to hire one of their bikes to go around the zoo but it was hard work. The bikes weren't great and fixed geared. Negotiating the hillocks weren't easy.

Got a chance to feed an elephant for Rs 20. Nice one. Not sure if there is a dedicated botanical garden. If there is one then I just plain missed it.

The Zoo is spread over a huge area, so you don't get a strong feeling of animals in captivity. Some wild animals roam freely over the area. The Botanical Garden, if it existed, was well hidden, so I couldn't find the way there.

I had spent over an hour searching and navigating ways to peep at an wild animal. It was not easy. It is located on hillocks. Directions are not clearly given. But surrounding is natural. Children can find it amusing. But overall there is plenty of scope to improve it.

"Assam State Zoo cum Botanical Garden".
The entry fee per person is 30/- rs and it remains closed on Friday. Make sure you do not carry any eatables in your bags/purses as they will be taken out at the checking point. The zoo was very big but it was under construction so, many animals were not present in the cages. Undoubtedly there were a few animals which we saw for the first time and hence we were very excited. Golf cart is also available there but due to construction work, the cart was not operable. In the zoo, one has to walk and walk.
It took us 2 hrs to see the complete zoo.
